John Varvatos Artisan 2.5 oz

If you’re rocking a fragrance inherited from your old man, or relying on a goopy deodorant stick for your olfactory game, it’s time to mix things up. Kick off your new scent strategy with this subtle, summery eau de toilette from Motor City designer John Varvatos. It’s the fragrance equivalent of your favorite jeans and a just-washed tee: classic, cool, and easy-going. Even the packaging—a flask wrapped in hand-woven rattan—exudes laid-back class.

Nice scent
Sampled

I do like the scent of this product, but I'm probably going to have a hard time getting my boyfriend to try it. He is very low maintenance and not big on cologne.

best fragrance sample so far
Sampled

This is my favorite fragrance sample that I've received so far. I'm iffy about perfumes and I'm starting to wonder if it's because I prefer men's fragrances. Musky and not too sweet.

I used this for myself, and found that I really liked the fresh, clean, outdoorsy scent.

not bad

While it was different than what I would normally choose, I did like it. I'm going to have my husband put it on tomorrow and we'll go from there.

Meh.

I gave it to my fiancee when I got it from my monthly birchbox. It's not a good sign that he used it and then immediately made an excuse to take a shower; then gave the small sample to his brother....

I liked that there was a sample for the hubby in my box. Subtle but distinct, he liked it and so did I. Thanks!

We both like it!

The John Varvatos Artisan cologne has a clean, fresh scent. I like it a lot, but gave it to my man. He smells delicious and, though he can be a bit picky re male fragrance, he seems to like it, too. Another hit, Birchbox!
